Hippo Birdie two Ewe!

by Janie Jones

Today is Leif’s birthday.

There will be a party today in his honor.

There will be some friends joining us in celebrating.

There will be T-bone steaks on the grill, provided it stops raining long enough, accompanied by corn on the cob, creamy parslied new potatoes, our own garden grown green beans, fresh Bing cherries, chips and mango-peach salsa, and home-made Two Layered Key Lime Cheesecake.

There will be beer and Mojitos.

There will be a horrible rendition of the birthday song, only in part because it follows the consumption of beer and Mojitos.

There will be a modest showering of presents.

And tomorrow will be the traditional trip to the swap meet to spend the anticipated birthday money.

Happy Birthday Leif.  It’s been a tough year, but at least I can give you one happy weekend.
